This is my 7 year old's favorite dish. I make it with out frying paneer since that's the way my son likes. I've been making it atleast once a week for him for the past 2 years, but just realized that I didn't thank you for the easy and tasty recipe. Thank you Aarthi. I love the way you show the procedure with your simple easy to follow pics. Keep giving us tasty recipes. Now I'm off to cook Shahi Paneer and Roti for dinner.
